Coßtep. (cosstep) / A set of bulbs

Coßtep. (cosstep)
Coßtep. (cosstep)

“Small step of the baby is a big step for a family.” coßtep (cosmos step), is a set of light bulbs to help kids learn to walk. As long as the kids touch the first bulb, it shuts off and the next one lights up, instructing kids to move forward. In this process, kids will try to get to the next bulb on their own.From crawling to walking, kids gain the consciousness of walking independently. According to a research, kids like globe-shaped things the best. That's why I choose to use globes on coßtep. Meanwhile I choose solar system as the inspiration for the frame of this project, giving it explorable significance.
